Possible World by Ezra Wube on the screens of Times Square, showing painted images of trees and other plants

Public parks, clean water, freedom from diseases, balanced weather, self-sufficiency: what do you hope the future will hold? Brooklyn-based Ethiopian artist Ezra Wube brings a vibrant collective vision to the screens of Times Square with Possible World (2021). The painted animation was inspired by interviews Wube conducted with over 100 people across Ethiopia. Wube brings to life his subjects’ dreams for a sustainable world in verdant scenes of abundance and interconnectedness that spill across the screens.

Wube takes these conversations to a global stage in Times Square, where Possible World asks the public to meditate on an environmentally just and sustainable future in New York City, a coastal city particularly susceptible to climate change. Coinciding with Climate Week NYC from September 20-26, Possible World is a means to consider our coexisting conditions and to support a communal dialogue for environmental solutions.

Midnight Moment is the world’s largest, longest-running digital art exhibition, synchronized on electronic billboards throughout Times Square nightly from 11:57pm to midnight.
